Your $250 donation to the Historic Gardens Donor Tree campaign will honour a loved one AND will help the Gardens flourish!
The Historic Gardens Donor Tree provides an opportunity for donors to recognize special people or occasions in a unique and lasting way. Our Donor Tree is a metal garden sculpture, approximately ten feet tall, created by artist Scott Hamlin. For a donation of $250, you may dedicate a leaf in memory of a loved one, to honour an occasion, or simply to support these wonderful Gardens.
A plaqued leaf will then be added to our tree, which is prominently displayed in our main courtyard, with an inscription that reflects the sentiment behind your donation (with a mutually agreed upon wording). Tens of thousands of visitors annually stop and admire the Donor Tree, reading the inscriptions and thinking about all the special people who have been honoured in this way.
All proceeds from donations go towards the continued development of the Annapolis Royal Historic Gardens, ensuring that these gardens continue as a world class garden for the enjoyment of future generations.
"We have here a rare treasure...and consequently a compelling responsibility to ensure that its second quarter century will be the equal of its first" - Donor Peter J. Nicholson
